Most Americans Don't Drink Enough Water

Up to 75% of Americans do not drink enough water

Drinking water is important because even mild dehydration can affect every part of your body, from your gut to your brain.

A survey of 3,003 U.S. adults found that three-quarters of the respondents had a net fluid loss, resulting in chronic dehydration.

Although the survey found that many Americans do drink about eight servings of hydrating beverages daily, this is offset by drinking caffeinated beverages and alcohol and eating a high sodium diet.

A gallon is 128 ounces or 16 eight-ounce glasses of water.

While you do get about 20% of your daily water intake from food, the rest you need to get from drinking.

Dehydration is a common cause of hospital admission, says Axios.
